as you no doubt recall, nancy spent thanksgiving with us here, atop this mountain where our home sits perched on this waterfall. her teacher (thank you, mona) sent me these drawings made by nancy on her first day back at school after the thanksgiving break. they take my breath away. one day i’d like to see what would become of nancy’s drawings in a 3-d printer. until then, these call for some special stitching . . .
yesterday i was absolutely blissed.
broadsided by love.
by the path i’m on.
by the beauty of this rock we call Earth.
by the dark clouds that waited their turn.
that far exceed just
getting up on skis
(they didn’t get up yesterday,
but today, by golly.)
(it’s my religion, you know.)
by the clouds that finally parted
mere minutes before midnight
the most exquisite
